How to Knit for Beginners: 9 Free Tutorials
Increasing knit stitches is easy when you have video tutorials like this one from Rebecca Roush from Chemknits. This particular video demonstrates the KFB (knit in the front and back) method for increasing. With kfb, you are increasing the number of stitches by knitting two stitches into a single stitch. You first knit into the front of the loop, as you would normally but without removing the stitch from the needle you also knit into the back of the loop.
Even if you already know how to cast on, you might not be familiar with the Twisted Loop method. In this video, Rebecca Roush will demonstrate how to cast on using the Twisted Loop method. This method allows you to increase stitches easily at the end of a knit row. All it takes is a pinch and a twist of the yarn and you've got extra stitches on your needle!
